Oceania Marina - Baltic Cruise - June, 2011
Destination: Baltic Sea
We arrived a day early in Stockholm. All flight arrangements were made by Oceania and they were convenient and priced right. The embarkation process was well handled. This was our first cruise with Oceania and we were not disappointed. The veranda room a decent size with enough spaces for our clothes. They could have had more electric outlets but we made due.
The bed was very comfortable and we were able to block out the light as it was still daylight at 4 a.m.
The bathroom had a tub and shower. We are not tub people and found that the shower was quite small. I know the tub is nice if you use it but I believe most people take a shower and the space could have been better used for a bigger shower. I think they are trying to become an upscale cruise line and a tub is their way to differentiate themselves from Princess, Royal Caribbean etc.
Visited Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Tallin, Riga, Visby, Gdansk, Ronne, Berlin and Copenhagen after starting in More Stockholm. Each one was interesting with St. Petersburg being the best and Ronne the weakest.
Spend a day in Stockholm before the trip and a day in Copenhagen after. Both cities a well worth it.
Never had time to use the spa.
The food was excellent at all meals whether the dining room or buffet. A must is the Kobe burger.
The entertainment is just OK but that did not matter to us as I go on a cruise for the ports and the ship.
We used SPB Tours for St. Petersburg and Berlin and they were A+ Less
